You're an investigator - can't nobody find stuff out like a woman.

Y'all put the police to shame, make the little investigative tricks they show on CSI and Law & Order: SVU look like counting lessons on Sesame Street.


I feel like 'CSI: Miami' was just a license to do all sorts of horrible things that I'd always wanted to do.

Most of my stuff before CSI was kind of the jerk boyfriend, so I thought this was one of those deals, where these two have a thing going on, so we had a scene where they make out.

[Julian Albert] is a CSI investigator;

a forensic expert with similar skills to Barry, which gives them a different relationship to, I think, anyone else that he works with, because they're sort of treading on each other's toes in their field of expertise.

Do you have any idea how much an elephant drinks?


180 episodes of 'CSI: Miami' and never the same lipstick twice!

I love David Caruso. I know it's not cool, but I do. I watch CSI: Miami. I think he's interesting.

What makes me happy is just curling up in with my mom in her bed and watching a marathon of 'CSI' and 'Grey's Anatomy' episodes with pints of ice cream.

[In the Flash my character] is not even CSI, it's forensic, talking about the stratum corneum...Yeah, I was referring to my Latin book often to make sure I pronounce things correct.

I learned from Bruce Lee, Be like water and Gil Grissom from CSI, Be like sponge.

I think many years from now, people will still watch television, though it will probably be 150 inches wide. What will change is the ability to get 'CSI' not only on TV but also on the Internet, even watching it in a foreign country as it's playing in the US.

I bet if you look at the average teenager and the average adult, the average teenager has read more books in the last year than the average adult. Now of course the adult would be all like, 'I'm busy, I got a job, I got stuff to do.' WHATEVER! READ! I mean, you're watching CSI: Miami. Why would you be watching CSI: Miami, when you could be READING CSI: Miami, the novelization?

I TiVo 'CSI,' 'CSI: Miami,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Young and The Restless' - my husband hates that one - and that's pretty much it.

My head's never really quiet. The only time I can get it to turn off is if I watch 'CSI' or 'Law & Order,' where I have to follow the crime. If I can't turn my head off during that, I know I've really got a problem.


I worked mostly in television drama for my first few years.

I just kept guesting on NYPD Blues and CSI-like stuff, so when I started getting work in comedy, a lot of people in the business would say, 'Oh - I didn't know you did comedy.'

The main producer [of CSI: Miami] Ann Donahue - I believe that is how she started - and then we have one other man on set but that's just his job although I haven't seen him this year. So maybe they figure we have it down somehow.

I think everybody knows that you know it's a stretch, but the good part of that though is since it's such a popular show [CSI: Miami] - all these CSIs - I have had a lot of people come up to me and say that they were going to go into that field.

They [people who were actually CSIs ] try to be as accurate as possible as far as like swabbing and getting it into the centrifuge and whatever all that takes, but I know that definitely we tend to get a case solved all in one week when in reality it takes years to solve one, I think.

We have people who were actually CSIs on set [CSI: Miami], so definitely I have learned a lot just having them around.


I think it was just part of the storyline [in CSI: Miami] and the producer called me beforehand and said, 'Listen, I am going to kind of do something with your character that looks like she might get fired, but I just want to reassure you that we're going to have you back,' and I thought, 'Oh god, I hope that is true.'

So this ["Grant MacLaren"] was a chance to sort of go back and do a more leading man. But instead of just solving crimes like a CSI show, this leading man is, like the other travelers, not who he appears.

This is really funny, but we did a study of the occupations of female characters on TV, and there are so many female forensic scientists on TV because of all the CSI shows and Bones and whatever. I don't have to lobby anybody to add more female forensic scientists as role models. There's plenty.In real life, the people going into that field now are something like two-thirds women.

I am more into things like CSI, but then Glee started and I was like, "Oh this is different."

I think people are tired of the CSI/SVU style of lurid and gory crime dramas.

That's a hard one because right now it seems that all I'm watching is Teletoons and Nickelodeon. You know what I love? I love Criminal Minds. I love CSI. Those are my kind of shows. I also love Modern Family...MasterChef, I'm huge into that. I'm a big Gordon Ramsay fan...I don't get a whole lot of time to watch anything but, if I can, those are some of the ones that I do tend to watch.

Everyone at 'CSI' has been so great to work with, and so great in terms of scheduling. There's a real feeling of family on that set... I've grown to have so much respect for the cast and crew - they're been together so many years and still care about the show and each other.

The day that I got the phone call to tell me that I booked ‘Glee’ I was shooting ‘CSI Miami.’ I was playing this heroin addict…I’d been on a million auditions where I sang and looked exactly the same way and didn’t do anything different. And so for this to be the one that popped it was just like what happened? It was the perfect timing and the perfect role for me. It was like everything came together.
